Time for another installment of eBay Auction Watch, focusing on Atlantic League memorabilia. There were some nice items changing hands this week.
A miniature Regency Furniture Stadium, given to Southern Maryland Blue Crabs season ticket holders, sold for an amazing $510.
A team-issue, brand new York Revolution bat drew heavy bidding and sold for $98.33. I’m a bit surprised at the selling price. A similar Newark Bears bat went for $22.50.
A pair of game-used, cracked Curtis Pride bats also hit the auction block. One went for $42.09 and the other sold for $26. The former Major League outfielder played for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in 2008.
A “Long Island Ducks authentic game BP jersey” sold for $26.59. I’m not familiar with this particular style, so I’m not sure which year(s) it was used. And the description is vague enough that I’m not positive that it’s “game-used” in the first place. For the curious, Ray Navarrete has worn #16 for the past three years.
A lot of manager’s carbon copy Atlantic League lineup cards sold for $28.99. I’m a bit surprise at the selling price considering that I was able to buy umpire’s copies of Atlantic League lineup cards (the top copy actually signed by the manager) for a few dollars earlier this year.
A Southern Maryland Blue Crabs inaugural season baseball, given away this year at Regency Furniture Stadium, sold for $39.99.
A Lancaster Barnstormer ice cream helmet, signed by manager Von Hayes as well as Matt LeCroy and a number of other players from the 2008 team, sold for $15.50.
A bobblehead of Somerset Patriots mascot Slider, given away in 2008 at a Somerset Patriots game, sold for $24.99. A similar bobblehead giveaway of York Revolution mascot Downtown failed to sell at the same opening price.
A War of the Roses commemorative t-shirt, signed on the back by 2008 York Revolution third baseman Matt Padgett, sold for $19.99. A game-used Atlantic League baseball hit by Padgett during a 2008 Atlantic League playoff game sold for $5.
A 2007 Long Island Ducks Media Guide sold for $6.50.
A small lot of memorabilia from the Atlantic City Surf’s inaugural season failed to sell at the seller’s $24.99 asking price. The lot included two inaugural season souvenir baseballs and a pair of 1998 Atlantic City Surf baseball card sets, one of which had three signed cards.
A poster promoting a 2001 playoff game between the Newark Bears and Somerset Patriots failed to draw any interest with a minimum bid of $12.
A baseball signed by six unidentified members of the 2004 Bridgeport Bluefish and two mascots failed to garner the overly optimistic $100 opening bid. It has been relisted with a $75 minimum price.
